Similar to the current Public Advocate’s FOIL tracker, all agencies should track their freedom of information law requests and make those requests public. Every citizen request should receive a tracking number and the ability to monitor the progression of that request via a website. This centralized tracking should cut across all executive agencies and therefore give a unique insight into what information is requested. Code for America has developed RecordTrack as an open-source way to track Freedom of Information Requests.
